Traveling a bumpy road!

So much has happened to me since I started SP April 9th 2010. I've lost weight of course and regained some, I've learned to stop eating when full and I've made some great spark friends. I'm sparking much of the time. Many know about my son's accident (6/17/2010)and the changes that has wrought on my life, my sister Véronique's death (11/7/2012) due to a brain tumor and Vicky's congestive heart failure, diabetes and a host of other problems. I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter ...

I also have been blessed with a new grand-daughter in May 2013 for a total of 5 grand-daughters and 1 grandson-the first and eldest of the grands..

I try to keep smiling and stay positive-not always easy, but the good Lord helps. I love life from infancy to old age.
I retired May 25th, 2012.
My 5 children and 6 grandchildren are an important part of my life.

With the exception of my cholesterol levels and a mobile blood pressure I am relatively healthy. Both my son's care and my weight contribute the occasionally elevated blood pressure. My cholesterol has been high since I was in my 40's and I am allergic to statin drugs which limits what I can take for the cholesterol problem. (I am in gray in the first picture, and turquoise in the second)

Member Since: 4/9/2010

SparkPoints: 82,839

Fitness Minutes: 82,237

My Goals:
1. track all of my foods, striving to get 5-8 fruits & veggies per day.
2. I will walk no LESS THAN 5,000 steps and work my way past 10,000.
3. to be more positive, and supportive to those around me, especially new widows.



My Program:
To watch what I eat, most importantly cutting back on cholesterol and sodium. Work to change a sedentary life into a more active life, which is difficult for me. Even though retired, I'm knitting and sewing more that makes for a still sedentary life.

Personal Information:
I was born in Bedford, Ohio of a Belgian mom and an American GI. I have lived in Belgium, Ohio, Florida and am currently in Georgia. I am widowed and have five grown children, one of whom had a traumatic brain injury June 2010 and for whom I am the court appointed Custodial Guardian.

Other Information:
I like to knit, sew-when I have time and play with my grandchildren.
I'd love to be able to travel again, to go back to Belgium and Austria, to see Ireland, Scotland, Switzerland and Italy.

I actually was not hurt or upset by the friends comment. Sometimes you can sense things wrong within yourself and that was one of them

when I told them last night, they were glad it was going to be part of my diagnosis, and they said they were also glad to know since they were thinking about going to get their ears checked

I see I'm not the only one who names our gadgets. Thanks for the warning about pins etc. I kept intending to get back to sewing and crocheting. If I ever actually do it, I'll be sure not to let "Dustin" loose in that area.

Thanks for the goodie and even more thanks for keeping us in your thoughts. We have a benefit this upcoming weekend in the area where most of my family still resides and the weather is predicted to be reasonable for the 300+ mile drive so we're going to go down there for some great family time while raising some money for Raidens Battle. Both Raiden & his grandpa are doing fairly well at the moment but they both will be getting their additional chemo and bone marrow/stem cell transplants which we all know will be tough again and risk filled. It is progress though. Sorry I haven't been very tuned in to my friends here...seems like I'm all consumed with "the boys". Thanks for being a steady friend.

Merci chère Ginie ! Ici ces jolies fleurs s'appellent "perce-neige". Tu fais bien de planter du muguet dans ton jardin, c'est une fleur si gracieuse et qui sent si bon !!!
